Tubac Jack's, one of the oldest restaurants in Tubac, has an eclectic menu of BBQ, Mexican, and worldwide favorites such as steaks, salmon, salads, burgers, pulled pork and, of course, our world famous green chili stew. Jack's has a huge patio to enjoy those beautiful southern arizona days and evenings, as well as a full dining room and bar suited for any size party. We have Johnny Bencomo playing his 18 string guitar every Friday night from 6-9, and a rotating list of bands playing on our patio every Saturday night. Jack's offers catering for parties large and small, take out, and a huge selection of craft beer and cocktails.

Went for lunch; had a burger and quesadilla. Server walked all over with our food before she finally found us so the food was cold and had to send it back.

We have visited there three times. I have read all the negative reviews most come back to service, especially at peak times. The food is very good, the server we had was a little abrupt but friendly and conscientious. Love the patio seating. You will enjoy your visit.

Also called Old Tubac Inn, Jack's is conveniently located inside the village. We sat at the terrace for a quick lunch, chose the quesadilla with chicken and a guacamole on the side. The server was friendly and we didn't wait for our meal. It was the best quesadillas that we ever had. The minus side were the forks and knifes... More

Great food and good prices make a winning combination for a dinner. The meaty, tender,Ribs are smoked on site and are not to be missed. The service was attentive but not bothersome. Our waiter, Greg, offered advise when asked. Stop and eat.

While at the Tubac Festival of Arts, we decided to try Tubac Jack's. After being told it would be a half hour wait, we returned to wait another 15 minutes. When seated, we were across from the grill so we had a great view of the food preparation. We ordered (and had to repeat the order two minutes later when... More

I combined the Tubac Festival of Arts with meeting family who lived nearby. My party of five sat at our table all afternoon having appetizers, drinks, and food. Considering that there was more than an hour wait for a table, I thought it was great that they never rushed us or made us feel like they wanted to turn the... More

Visited Tubac and stop at Jack's for lunch. Portions were generous--I had the Little Jack burger which at 1/4 pound was plenty. Bring your appetite if you want to tackle the 1/2 pound version😎

We have lived in the area near Tubac for eight years. We have avoided Tubac Jack because all our friends and neighbors avoid it. On this occasion, we were in the company of a young lady that is a recent resident. She had been to Jacks with her mother, and wanted to go back.we arrived in the early afternoon, and... More

We always enjoy stopping at Tubac Jack's when my wife decides we need to visit Tubac for shopping.. The food always seems to be good and it's just a fun place to relax for a afternoon cocktail. At times they have entertainment but so if you are looking for that you might want to check in advance..Nice patio area but... More
